The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

Alone and lost in the Dark of Night during a storm... Our weary traveller explores his surroundings as he tries to find a way past various obstacles. Game is a bit spooky, with a few surprises and some nice special effects as well(lightning, thunder, rain, etc)... Best played with the lights down low, and the sound turned up a bit. ;)

Made for the October 2005 "Release Something - Halloween Edition" AGS event.

Light and Rain "plugins" are included with the zip download.

Game should run fine on most versions of Windows and on most modern computer systems.

I loved this game and wish there could be more like it. Looking forward to the sequel.

This is a great short adventure game. I really hope it is turned into a full game, that would rock! The atmosphere is easily the best I have seen in a AGS game ever, the lighting and darkness, rain and everything is just spooky and it really draws you in. Wonderful stuff. I hope more scary games of this quality get made with AGS.

Hey, that background with the gate in the screenshot. Is that from Alone in the Dark: The new Nightmare? It is isn't it? Cool! I like that game (but it don't work on my computer... even though it's not that old!) It worked on my older computer though. You know I'll give this a try.

This is my first post. I loved this game, and I do hope that someday I may be able to walk down the steps towards the sea!

After talking to the skeleton several times, leaving and re-entering the bloody stairs room, I still can't find the broken barrel with the mouse.

Stylish work. Hurry up with the full version.

Really nice game, especially the view (backgrounds, effects).
I'm looking forward to a continuation.

Good game, and yeah... I think it should be made into a full version. Thanks!

Fantastic remake. I usually have a problem with wannabes...but your graphics were great and the puzzles made sense. The ambience was strong enough to qualify this as a great remake. The only problem I had with it was it was too short, leaving a huge plot hole. I just hope that you can extend this into a full length game with a great plot. Please, keep working on it.
